News Five has confirmed that a police investigation is currently underway at the traffic department in the island town of San Pedro. This follows reports that a number of residents were conned in a well-put together scam carried out by former and current members of the public department. It involves traffic stickers which were paid for and received, but are reportedly fake. News Five has been reliably informed that a raid of several residences on the island yielded evidence to suggest that the scam was ongoing for some time and that former traffic wardens and a technician within the department are involved. Today, a public notice was issued by the town council stating that the traffic department office on the island was closed for the day and will reopen on Friday. News Five attempted to get a comment from Mayor Wally Nunez today, but we were told that he was in a meeting with the Coastal Executive Officer, Superintendent Chris Noble.
